Axehead Assembly #25: Games of the Year

Prepare to roll a dildo in glitter and mount it in a trophy case because it's 'Games of the Year' time for the Axehead Assembly!

Before we get to that, however, we tackle Christopher Brady's blog Why I think games are NOT art. After we have (very politely) lynch mobbed Mr. Brady we discuss what exactly IS the definition of art. We then go on to chat about the games that make a good case for 'games as art' and the games that definitely don't.

Next up on this monolithic, bumper sized episode we delve into the titular 'Games of the Year'. All the usual suspects are present and accounted for (The Last of Us, GTAV, Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 4...) but we also make time for some of the more overlooked games like Total War: Rome 2, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Ni No Kuni and Gucamelee. We talk more games than you can shake Nazi Gandalf's magic stick at!

Add to that some staunch disagreements over the merits of Binary Domain and the Metal Gear franchise, Sigmund's XBOXONE launch report plus Saints Row 4, Tomb Raider, Sonic: Lost World, Doom, Mega Man X, Surgeon Simulator 2013 plus many more and you have a maniacally cackling, "PUSH TO TALK!" shouting, nuclear shark-bomb throwing podcast on your hands.

All that and a lot more can be enjoyed right here:

NBA2K15 Review

The NBA2K series has been one of the most dominant franchises in gaming. While some sports franchises rely on exclusivity deals to corner the market, NBA2K was able to do it the old fashioned way: make a far superior product to your competitor, and force them to close shop. This dominance allowed NBA2K to end the last console generation as the unchallenged king of basketball video games. 2K began the new console generation with another solid entry in the series. While NBA2K14 for the PS4 and…
